Delusional and Hubristic 80s Kids I know I’m probably overloading on YouTube, but I think it’s the greatest thing since the original Netscape browser.  Here are two gems that cannot be ignored if you haven’t already seen them: the below subpar rapping of the Average Homeboy and the incredible overacting of Brian Atene. What makes these such great clips is…

Go Vote! That’s it. Polls close at 7pm (I think). Go vote. Doesn’t matter for who. Or go vote against. Just do it. Want to show that Iraq was bad? Go vote. Want to demonstrate our freedom to other countries? Go vote. Please! It does matter (except in Florida)! VOTE!!!! Old School Election Cartoon:  [youtube]Ckr1tZitZtU[/youtube] New School…

btasflik.jpg I’m one of those people that once I get an idea in my head, it sits there gnawing away at me until I do something about it (I’m also fairly lazy, so the gnawing can last for years). So after my post about Flickr, I decided to go grab a bunch of old photos that…

starbles1.jpg Well, I had planned for this to be the second installment of Rejected!  But when I looked up the company making these, I found out that they apparently were released, maybe as a Canadian exclusive. Anyway, what these are, are "Starbles"! Most aptly described as a cross between marbles and pogs, Starbles did not take…

flickr.jpg As a designer, I’m always thankful that I have at my fingertips some of the greatest tools ever developed for both sheer flexibility and ease of use in making me look good: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter, and my trusty Wacom tablet. Up until now I also have relied heavily on what I consider my secret…

Most collectors don’t realize that outside of the online communities there is a giant world of books about toys. I hope to highlight some of these books from time to time, since for the most part they are not readily noticable at your local bookstore. Today we’re going to look at Mastering the Universe: He-Man…

bkringtitle.jpg This will be an ongoing feature here at Ottertorials: ideas and concepts that never made it off the drawing board. While many collectors are aware of certain toys and figures that never make it into production (especially concerning Star Wars toys) most people don’t realize that for every toy made, there are dozens if not…

Crack! I hope everyone is enjoying the blogs so far; we’ve been a bit slow getting up to speed, but there are some neat things coming that should make everyone happy (or at least slightly bemused). I had planned to have a few more cool items up in this blog at this point, but at a…

trufront.jpg Maybe. Wal-mart has called out Toys R Us before the heavy Holiday shopping has even begun: Wal-Mart lowers prices on more than 100 toys I think maybe Wal-Mart knows that TRU is move vunerable now than ever, and maybe they can prevent the upswing it needs to give new CEO Gerald Storch the leverage he…

The Boy Without Fear? This is pretty amazing…and about as close to a "real life DareDevil" that we’ll ever see. Check it out below!   [youtube]c49dS76KhGc[/youtube]   I would imagine that way back when Stan Lee & Bill Everett conceived the character they thought that this level of "echo location" was purely in the science fiction realm (And DD…
